Roseanna N. Zia
Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Mechanical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe Zia Group seeks answers to 3 Grand Challenge questions utilizing theory and computational analysis of complex fluids:
1. Understand the mechanical nature of the origin of life.
2. Elucidate the mechanics of the (colloidal) glass transition and kinetic arrest.
3. Develop generalized non-equilibrium fluctuation-dissipation theory for soft matter.
Though seemingly disparate avenues of inquiry, they are deeply and surprisingly connected by fluid and suspension mechanics.
